ANCHORAGE - A neighborhood in east Anchorage is striking back at its graffiti, trash and road problems.
Community members and parishioners of St. Anthony Catholic Church have spent years promoting a clean and safe neighborhood.
A recent meeting at the church was the culmination of numerous meetings with residents who live near Klevin Street and San Roberto Avenue.
Father Fred Bugarin said city leaders have been invited to hear the results of their residential visits.
The city is planning a temporary fix, using funds from projects that came in under budget.
Jim Lamson with the city's Project Management and Engineering Department said the city plans to put $75,000 toward road and curb improvements on San Roberto.
